I am late with this entry. I am much slower at fitting in my writing goals. I little over a month ago I was in the hospital. I had an internal bleed in the lower intestine. Fortunately, it was not a “bad” bleed. It stopped not long after my arrival to the hospital. I was in the hospital 3 days. Doc wanted me to stay a little longer, but I convinced him that Del is the best nurse I’ve ever had. Therefore, I would be OK.
I began to speak with my Doc about my life expectancy. (A topic I had avoided until then). He said, well you have actually done much better than most. I have lived about a year longer than expected.
Wow. It feels weird to know that I am a first place runner in this race. In fact, I am in the 1% bracket.
Do not look at this as if I could die at any time. Know that I am beating the odds. So far, God is holding my hand and has kept me from teetering over to the other side.
In one hand I clasp the Medal of Life. In the other, I hold the hand of Christ.
